An Apple A Day
A Still-life Painting from my Daily Paintings project.
6" x 8", Oil on canvas.
We all know a saying that "An apple a day keep the doctor away" but very few people know that apple seeds contain traces of arsenic. It is part of nature's defense mechanism, for the apple species. It is amazing how same tree which produces nourishing apple also produces arsenic that's poisonous and also packages them together so well without contamination.
